If there is a cookbook of the year, this [Mediterranean Feast] is it.  A remarkably ambitious work....The subject is vast, the scope of time daunting, but Wright comes across as a cheerful, dedicated scholar who was sorry when he had to stop.  Recipes are written to be accessible to contemporary cooks.
- William Rice, Chicago Tribune


Cucina Paradiso is a cookbook, not some dry, dull gastronomic text.  The recipes are seductively written, and powerfully appealing.  And Wright’s refreshing lack of arrogance...is a rarity among food writers today.
- Robin Mather, The Detroit News
